Australian Sign Language

Auslan is taught to students from years  3 to 6. Auslan is the main medium of communicating for many Australians. It is also recognised as an official Australian language. By developing an understanding of  Australian sign language children will be able to communicate with the ever growing community of signing people across Australia.

There is also significant research into the enhanced overall communication capabilities of children who are exposed to sign language as a means of communication. As 10% of primary school children within Australia are estimated to have a hearing loss impairing speech development and understanding, the introduction of sign language within the primary school environment will develop a linguistic ability and gain a socio-cultural understanding of Australia's hearing and communication impaired people.
